Evolution Taekwon-Do is proud to be part of a truly international federation, giving our students every opportunity possible to better themselves and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.

Happy Birthday ITF Taekwon-Do

[03/20/20]   ⚠️⚠️ CORONAVIRUS UPDATE⚠️⚠️
Dear students, parents and supporters. In light of the government announcement today, now is the time to move all our effort online. All Evolution classes will be temporarily suspended until such time that it is safe and lawful to reconvene our classes in a group setting.

🌐ONLINE CLASSES🌐
As you are aware we have an exciting opportunity to deliver our quality tuition to you all during the forced shutdown, and to keep you company during the period of self-isolation.

We have invested in a number of online platforms to give you the very best experience. Naturally, there may be one or two teething problems during the initial phase, so please bear with us.

The online training will be a mixture of live video training, pre-recorded training material, direct video corrections of a students technique (this is particularly exciting!), live Q & A sessions, as well as online quizzes.

🥋🥊🥋🥊🥋🥊🥋
Once we return to normal, we shall be offering a number of additional workshops and seminars at no additional charge.

We are offering all this as a thank you for your support, and as a way to accelerate your learning, to help you maintain your standard and your promotion schedule.

These are uniquely challenging times, and I would like to personally thank all our members for their continued support. Please remember that this will pass, and we will return to normal service as soon as we can.

Myself and our instructor team are working very hard to bring you the best online tuition possible and training resource which I believe will be invaluable to you all to help keep you focussed, fit and healthy in body and mind!

May I take this opportunity to thank each of you in advance for your understanding and your continued support - both of which are so vital to ensure the survival of our schools during these challenging times. I have been teaching Martial Arts for over 25 years, and I don't intend to stop now! I can't wait to see you all online very very soon!

Stay safe, stay healthy.

*Covid-19 Update*

For your information, here is the new advice from Public Health England.

It advises you to self-isolate, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if you have:

a. A new continuous cough
and/or
b. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)

It is very important that you do not enter your martial arts club if you have these symptoms. However, if you are feeling fit and well, all of our clubs are remaining open and we would encourage you to continue your classes as normal.

Evolution Martial Arts Taunton

At Evolution Martial Arts, the health, wellbeing and safety of our members and their family is our first priority.

We would like to kindly remind everyone that it is always our recommendation to avoid coming to class if you are feeling unwell. Anyone coming to class showing signs of illness will be politely asked not to train and to return to training when they are well. Under these unusual circumstances, on return to training you will be invited to make up any missed classes.

While we are very much aware and understand our members being concerned about Covid-19, we want to reassure you that as a Martial Arts School, we’re monitoring the developing situation extremely closely and we are following all advice issued by the British Taekwon-Do Council who are taking guidance from Public Health England.

There have been no suspected or confirmed cases of Covid-19 at any of the Evolution Schools. If this situation changes, we will act quickly to protect our members, staff and local communities.

There is presently no reason why people should stop doing their daily sport and physical activities as they normally would. We have been given no indication that we should suspend classes, and we will continue to operate until told otherwise.

Should we be forced to suspend group classes we plan to implement an online live-training facility. Please join the relevant group at the bottom of this email to gain access. (More information to follow).

So, at a time of heightened sensitivity around hygiene and public health, we want to offer some measured and informed advice to help put your mind at ease and allow our classes to continue in a safe manner:

✅ Keep your hands clean, wash regularly and thoroughly, for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.

✅ Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch all coughs and sneezes and then bin the tissue - then wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser.

✅ Students will not be able to borrow sparring equipment from the club. Please bring your own pads - make sure they are clean before and after use.

✅ Please use the sanitiser wipes provided to wipe down any club equipment used.

✅ If you think you may have encountered the virus, please let us know and follow the government advice, and self-isolate in the first instance.

✅ Remember: please do not come to the club if you are unwell!

We look forward to seeing you soon and we will keep you updated as the situation evolves.

All Evolution members please join our private Facebook group

This group will be used for a live class feed if classes have to be cancelled

💥Developing turning side kick💥

During class Mr Miller taught turning side kick to the junior advanced grade TKD class in Taunton.

During this section of the session Mr Miller is explaining the key to the kick is not to over rotate and to control the spin; this will help the kick travel in a straight line with maximum power. 🦶💥

Wow! What a journey it’s been so far.🥋

With Sean’s ability now it’s hard to imagine him ever struggling at Taekwon-Do.

Sean is a fantastic example of perseverance and hard work. He continually struggled during his intermediate years, having his peers promote ahead of him and junior grades over take him. This is enough to make most children quit. Thankfully Sean’s parents could see the benefits of training and kept him going through these tough times.

Sean’s perseverance is now paying off. Not only is he becoming a fantastic Taekwon-Doist but he’s also a great role model and mentor to the other students in the club.

Keep up the great work Sean 👍🙏
